CALL FOR PAPERS
---------------
10th International Workshop on Modelling, Simulation, Verification and Validation of Enterprise Information Systems - MSVVEIS 2012
http://www.iceis.org/MSVVEIS.aspx

In conjunction with the 14th International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems - ICEIS 2012
http://www.iceis.org/

BACKGROUND AND GOALS
--------------------
One of the most important recurrent problems in any enterprise is how to ensure the reliability and correctness of the core processes and systems the company relies on. This event focuses on the provision of methods and tools that can increase the level of confidence on Enterprise Information Systems (EIS).

Procedures to increase the quality of the outcome for an EIS can be exercised at different levels and this forum considers methodologies that can help, either at an organizational or at a software development level, to increase the level of confidence in the IS used and produced. The complexity of modern companies, which are usually geographically distributed and support online simultaneous operations from many customers around the world, is reflected in complex operational procedures as well as in the sophisticated software that is needed to realize that operational structure. Several methodologies have been developed to analyse and develop processes that whilst reflecting the complex operational contexts of modern companies are also reliable. Modelling, Simulation, Verification and Validation are particularly connected with the responsible production of systems and quality assurance testing. They can be connected to each other in order to explore the behaviour of a system under development and to evaluate how it relates to the intended implementation.

Continuous advances in the complexity of systems produced around the world relentlessly push ahead the boundaries uncovering new challenges as new application domains are considered and new technologies are combined or created. Some characteristic problems faced by software developers in the area of EIS are the use of distributed resources interacting via synchronous or asynchronous communication, consistency of data, security and performance issues, as well as integrating web services and agent technologies, to mention a few. At higher levels of granularity in the various IS co-existing in a company the fundamental procedures used to operate a business can be also subject of rigorous analysis and refinement to increase the quality and reliability on the overall business process, for example through the analysis of workflows. In recent years an emerging trend claims that, to cope with this complexity, systems should focus on the customer essential needs, those needs that really deliver value to the customer. This trend is sometimes called agile or lean.

After several decades of sustained effort, many techniques and associated tools are now available to industry and business-related professionals to rigorously scrutinize the core processes and products of their operation. Still the problems are numerous as systems grow and new technologies are considered. EIS are a continuous source of interesting challenges and to contribute to the progress of this area our workshop is annually organized in order to stimulate the exchange of ideas/experiences of practitioners, researchers, and engineers interested in the elaboration of more reliable systems.

This is the tenth edition of this workshop, and one of the aims of it is to stimulate dialogue and interaction between people working in the area from different perspectives. A wide range of contributions are welcomed, describing both practical and theoretical works, as well as case studies from the following list of topics.
